Outreach International – Part 1
In May 2017, a sect that started in Melbourne, Australia, 50 years ago, and has been highly secretive over the last few decades, decided to change its closed-doors policy and go public with a website. Whilst up until now very little has been known about the group except by direct conversations with former believers, its members go to government schools, attend public universities, and work in everyday jobs. They could be your neighbour, your colleague, or even a friend, and you’d have no idea what’s really going on in their private lives.
CORRECTION: There is a mention of the Book of David in this episode – this was a slip of the tongue, it should be the Book of John.
Special Guest: Laura Sullivan.
